Prospective Transfer Student Architecture Workshop

A day in the life of an architecture undergrad at the University of Michigan.

The Prospective Transfer Student Architecture Workshop is designed to engage undergraduate students who are interested in architecture and the creative arts, but have yet to declare architecture as their major. The day will help students visualize a day-in-the-life of a U-M architecture undergraduate student. The day will include workshops to understand the technology used in coursework, conversations with current students and alumni, a faculty talk and meetings with admissions counselors. U-M accepts transfer students into the undergraduate architecture program in their junior year. This event is free to qualified applicants.
